Delicious! I catered a grilled fajita lunch for 50 people today using this recipe...it was a hit! Several asked for me to share this recipe. Wish I could take the credit for it. The chipotle peppers are what give it that great taste! Served it with grilled multicolored bell peppers and grilled onions. Also guacamole, salsa fresca, refried beans, limes, chopped cilantro, sour cream and cheese. My mouth is watering as I write this!
Yikes! This was too spicy for us to eat. My husband did not even like it. The next day I felt like I had to eat the leftovers so I smothered it with sour cream. It went from yikes to yum but probably not to healthy.
This is great-but try using one small package of Sazon instead of the 2 tablespoons finely chopped canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and adobo sauce. It results in a much milder taste with a great color. You can find the Sazon on the Ethnic food isle near the adobo sauce. Also, add a little dried Adobo (Goya, of course).
Amazing marinade. I have used this recipe with sirloin steak; pork chops; shrimp and chicken breasts--all with excellent results. Have my daughter hooked on it & am sending to my son. I always make up the entire can of marinade & keep in refrigerator for the "entree of the day". Equally delicious on the grill or inside on the grill pan! Thanks Tracie--this a keeper.
For juicy fajitas, I use a flank steak, marinating it overnight before grilling. It may not look or smell pretty, but the flavor is fantastic and the meat comes out incredibly tender.
What a wonderful surprise. The marinate didn't smell very good when i mixed it. I didn't add quite as many chiles as called for.
After marinading it still didn't smell very apetizing. But wow, after the steak was grilled it was wonderful. It will be one of our favorites from now on. It must be tried!!!
Yummy! I will usually make this with london broil, as we have a family of 5. I use 2-3 chopped chipotles and 3 Tbs of adobo sauce (the kids aren't crazy about spicy, hubby and I are), and marinate overnight. The best part of this recipe is the leftovers for lunch the next day wrapped in warm tortillas with cheese and sour cream!
This recipe was fantastic. Easily put together and very unique flavor. Not too spicy and definitely not dull. The lime adds a lot of flavor, don't leave it out. Adobo sauce is not hard to find if your grocery store has ethnic foods.
